Question about Creative Labs WebCam NX ULTRA

1 Answer

Black screen My webcam used to work but recently when I turn it on it shows the Creative logo and then becomes a black screen. I've reinstalled the drivers and software several times already but it still won't capture images, not with third party software nor the webcam center. Thanks!

to download the Free AMCAP Video Capture Program.
AMCap v9.20 AMCap is a small yet fully functional video capture application compatible with Microsoft DirectShow. It is based on the sample AMCap from the Microsoft DirectX 9 SDK. AMCap supports still captures to BMP, JPEG and PNG formats and it remembers your Video Input, Video Standard and Video size settings from previous session. It has some nice features like multimonitoring support, zooming, aspect ratio and deinterlacing features.

AMCap is a small and effictive piece of software and definitely worth trying. Hope this will help. Bud

How do I get my webcam to stop showing black screen?

You may have to do a remove/reinstall of the webcam software for the webcam. Make sure to clean the lens of the webcam and ensure that the connection cord you are using to connect to the computer is working correctly. A faulty cord will cause a black screen/no reception to come in from the webcam.

No Video: Black/Gray Screen

Test your hardware here
Click 'allow' in top panel and see if your cam broadcasts in the left panel
If it does - you know your cam hardware is OK and you need to look at the software.

First check the 'Imaging' folder in the Device Manager
Expand the folder and right click on your webcam text
select 'Update driver' and use the internet option

You can uninstall the software from the control panel and download from
the HP website

Black screen

The problem sounds like it is not with the hardware or software - You are able to take pictures indicating the device is on and working.

The problem appears to be with the associated programmes such as Skype, Yahoo. You need to select on of the video chat programmes and select the webcam you choose to work with it.

In any of the video chat you will find it is in options/ settings/ video

Ive installed a creative web cam correctly. At first all I got was short views of the line of sight. Now all I get is a black or green screen , or it says not responding-or other program running or check...

Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
